Sefer Torah Stolen From Monticello Shul


The Monticello Shul was burglarized on Friday night, and a Sefer Torah was unfortunately stolen. 

YWN spoke with Rabbi Benzion Chanowitz, who is the Rov of the Landfield Avenue Shul, who says the burglary happened some time Friday night after he left the Shul. 

The Sefer Torah has a “blue mantel” on it. 

The Monticello Police Department and the NY State Police are investigating. 

If anyone is approached to purchase a Sefer Torah, or anyone has any information which can help in its return, please call Rabbi Chanowitz at 845-794-8470.
